Athletes: The best quartermiler you have.
Scenario: He injures his hamstring in his season opener and is unable to do running for 2 weeks and sprinting for 5 weeks. This leaves him with 3 weeks of solid training prior to the biggest meet of the indoor season. He was in PR shape coming in to the first meet and has a solid fall and early winter training base. There are no facility or equipment related limitations and he is able to resume normal lifting programs after 2 weeks.
Things to consider:
*What would you focus on at various points of his return (speed, strength, flexibility, etc)?
*What would you do as alternative training when he is unable to sprint?
*Would you still attempt to run him in the big meet or would you restructure and focus on the outdoor season?
